Audiences have already enjoyed “Katy’s Got Talent,” and “The Golden Buddha Jazz Orchestra.” Now Katy residents and beyond, look forward to seeing “Jacque Brel is Alive & Well and Living in Paris.”
David Bowie has named Jacques Brel’s original album one of his favorite albums of all time. “Jacque Brel” is one of the longest running Off-Broadway shows. Burton Wolfe, the musical’s Artistic Director, says, “This is one of my favorite heart-felt musicals because the music and lyrics are filled with passion and are all about the feelings and experiences we all go through in life.”
